Alternatively, if you don't give a rat's behind about reflections and glare, like seemingly most users here at OCN, get a glossy for epeen bolstering.

Otherwise, matte is "safer".

but the poll in this thread shows that 43 per cent of the users have the glossy one, opposed to the 40 per cent who have the matte.

On that note, everyone be sure to take the poll if you've bought one!

The glossy one has been cheaper pretty much the whole time, probably the reason for this. I would also recommend matte by the way.

Epeen? Could be the fact that some of us have light controlled rooms and prefer the superior picture quality of a glossy display

The cheapest one i can find right now is the excellentcastle: http://www.ebay.com/itm/27-QNIX-QX2710-Evolution-ll-Matte-Screen-2560x1440-QHD-PLS-Monitor-/261204411997?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item3cd0ff065d
But i have a 40$ shipping.

There is also lovelypeople: http://www.ebay.com/itm/QNIX-QX2710-LED-2560x1440-QHD-Samsung27-PLS-Panel-DVI-D-Monitor-Matte-Screen-/161014994936?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item257d3dd7f8
But it says matte in the header and glossy in the description. Also a 30$ shipping.

Green-Sum got this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brand-New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-27-2560x1440-WQHD-Samsung-PLS-Monitor-/140961485035?pt=AU_comp_monitor&hash=item20d1f590eb But it doesn't say whether it's matte or glossy. No Shipping


Do they got different return politics etc.? Or are some of them known to have bad customer service and such?


I´m from Denmark too and just bought the exact same one you listed (first one) from excellentcastle. As far as I can see excellentcastle and bigclothcraft seem to be good vendors. I haven´t heard from the seller yet but will probably tomorrow, I can update you on the the process if you want. I ended up paying 2000 kr including shipping (344 USD).

What about taxes, do you happen to know how much will they be?
post #650 of 25893
Not sure.. I think if you get lucky you won´t have to pay much. I´m gonna try to get him mark it as "return from repair", maybe that will slip it by.
